A look back at 2018’s anime; How many did you watch?

January 23, 2019

Now, even though I haven’t posted much… in the last… however many years(2 and a halfish), I’ve still very much been keeping up with the anime airing each season each year. Probably because of that I’ve not written anything. But I’d like to try and change that. Juggling work, what I watch, play and sometimes read is always difficult though. BUT!!! Let’s give it a whirl!

I’ll confess that my taste in anime can sometimes be questionable. But I feel you need some trash in your life to balance out the Oscar/award-worthy titles. That said, I don’t stoop as low as “In Another World with my Smartphone” and “The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar”… but I do enjoy more than the odd isekai, which my best boy has pretty much tapped out on as he feels the market is oversaturated and they all have dumb titles. Which is probably true for about half of anime these days anyway.

Yurikumaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa~ Yurikuma Arashi!!

June 8, 2016

ginko n yurigasaki

Got these almost a year ago now I guess. Been worried about leaning, but they seem to be holding up well so far. And being the only Yurikuma figures I’ve seen, full scale anyways, I had to have them. Got them together for £30-ish I believe. (It’s been a while.) Considering the price, they both look very nice. And in these outfits too. Can’t wait for the Blu ray’s to come out too :DD

Hestia is bestia – 1/8th scale Kotobukiya figure

June 8, 2016

hestia3

A few months ago I was lucky enough to snag this beauty during a sale on Hobbysearch, she’s now sold out on there too sadly. Their most recent sale prompted me to post this photo’s I took a while ago. Because there were more Hestia’s in this new sale… the Genco mount one, with the pillow(now sold out since this morning), and a Cu-Poche one. There’s one other, but that one didn’t tempt me. However I now have 2 more Hestia’s on the way…….. I think I have a problem… Many many photo’s below the cut…

Snack Update – I haven’t eaten it all yet. And more has come.

BOX OF FUNNNNN CANDYSAN

So a while ago I posted the pics of the Dagashi set 2 and the Fukubukuro box from Freedom Japanese Market… I still haven’t finished it all. And the Discovery Box from Candysan arrived last week…. and then the April Subscription box from FJM arrived yesterday… so much like a backlog of TV or anime… I have a backlog of candy and snacks…. not that I’m complaining. I’d love nothing more than to stuff my face with it all very quickly. But I’m trying to be good. I refused to start the Dagashi set 2 until I’ve finished set 1. And I still had 2 things left when I did start it I think… and I still have stuff from my FJM sample box too… maybe 1 or 2 things… Read the rest of this entry »

Punchline Limited Edition – PSVita

May 9, 2016
Front of the box. Was a bigger box than I expected too.

Front of the box. Was a bigger box than I expected too.

So I love this series. Unconditionally. Irrationally even. So much so, I went and preordered the game, which is currently only in Japanese. Not only that, it was the limited edition, with a drama CD which for the most part I won’t be able to understand XD. I considered preordering it on Amazon, but at that time they still didn’t ship games outside of Japan. So I went with Play-Asia. A site I’ve used before for things here and there. Never a game costing this much… I figured I was going to get smacked with a hefty import tax and VAT and what have you. So I prepared myself mentally. Hell. It was only shipped last week pretty much, 2 weeks tops, so I wasn’t expecting anything to arrive yet, usually Play-Asia’s shipping is pretty slow…. so you can imagine my shock and delight when it turned up this morning. No card saying ‘PAY THIS NOW’ or anything. It just appeared… it even had the full amount declared on the box, AND it was marked as Merchandise… not gift…. so I’m baffled as to why I didn’t get slapped with import tax. Not complaining. Just dazed and confused. Happily so. (More pics of the unboxing below the cut.)

Gundam Breaker 3 – This game is going to ruin me

May 8, 2016
The backpack is currently clipping through the wings, but it's worth it XD

The backpack is currently clipping through the wings, but it’s worth it XD

So because of Build Fighters, we got back into building Gunpla, and subsequently I heard about this game getting an English Asian release… and Rice Digital stocking it…(Super out of stock now I’m afraid. They did say it’d be very limited!) things happened, stuff got added to baskets. Long story short. I bought the game. I have no regrets. Apart from the fact we now have to fight over PS4 time. Part of me wishes I bought it for the Vita too. But I figured it’d look cooler on the big TV. Which is does. Very much so. But as I’m typing, the husbando is playing. Fair enough I spent close to 4 hours playing earlier. But he got to play all of yesterday while I was at work. So he’s ahead of me. When I bought the game! He didn’t even want it…
